Tuesday, 26 November 2002 12:00 AM

Soon the busiest shopping time of the year will be upon us.

But, deplorably, it is also the predominant time for so-called Christmas crooks.

You know who I mean – those parasitic thugs who will try to steal your kids’ dream toys, your hard-earned cash and, perhaps, even your credit cards while you are busy enjoying the phenomenal holiday season with your family and friends.

Here are some basic holiday shopping security ideas, suggested by law enforcement, that you can use to help make this season a fun and happy time for you and yours – and a really bad time of the year for your local bloodsucking bandits.

Don’t let the Christmas crooks pilfer your holiday delights!
